24-year-old signed Rangers deal just weeks ago, but must be offloaded in summer

COMMENT

Rangers attacker Josh Windass has had the best season of his career so far after scoring 17 times for the Gers – but if the right bid comes in during the summer, director of football Mark Allen should cash in.

A number of English Championship sides were reportedly sniffing around Windass in the January window and had a hand in the Gers giving Windass a new contract four weeks ago but that should only help add a bit more to the 24-year-old’s value.

While it might seem a bit odd selling the club’s joining top-goalscorer, Windass’ performances have often left a lot to be desired and his latest vanishing act – in the 1-0 defeat to Kilmarnock on Saturday – happens a bit too often.

If the 24-year-old showed any signs of being able to turn in performances in big games then it would possibly be a different matter but after almost two seasons at Ibrox he has rarely shown up when it matters for the Gers.

If the right bid was to come in for Windass then the Gers should seriously look at taking it and using the money elsewhere to strengthen a squad in bad need of some leadership on the park.

At age 24, there’s only so much more leeway Windass can get before he should be looked at as a senior player who sets an example for younger players, not goes hiding in games.
